Charles City Police Chief Hugh Anderson

Charles City, Iowa – Please join the Blue Guardians during the RAGBRAI festivities on Wednesday at 6:30 pm to honor local and Iowa law enforcement. There will be a tree dedication ceremony behind the Charles City Library at the riverfront for local fallen officer Adam Liddle. Adam was born in New Hampton, Iowa, and graduated from Charles City High School in 1998. He was a deputy with Black Hawk County and then an officer with the Waterloo Police Department.

A park bench will be donated to the City of Charles City in honor of all Iowa Fallen Officers. The bench is located outside the Charles City Library doors (west side). “We are proud to have these visible reminders of the sacrifice law enforcement officers make to ensure safety in our communities,” states Charles City Police Chief Hugh Anderson.

Additionally, there will be a law enforcement ceremony held on the main stage on Jackson Street at 9 pm the night of July 26th.

The tree and bench were donated to the community by the Blue Guardians; they would like to offer a special thank you to the City of Charles City Parks & Recreation Department, especially Steve Lindeman, and Otto’s Oasis, Jeff and Lori, for making this possible.
